The Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association is a national federation of 38 independent, community-based and locally operated Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies that collectively provide healthcare coverage for 100 million members – one-in-three Americans.  For more information on the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association and its member companies, please visit www.BCBS.com .  We encourage you to connect with us on Facebook , check out our videos on YouTube , follow us on Twitter and check out The BCBS Blog , for up-to-date information about BCBSA.

Blue Distinction Centers met overall quality measures for patient safety and outcomes, developed with input from the medical community. Blue Distinction® Centers+ also met cost measures that address consumers' need for affordable healthcare. Individual outcomes may vary. National criteria is displayed on www.bcbs.com .  A local Blue Plan may require additional criteria for facilities located in its own service area. 

To find out which services and providers (including hospital based physicians) are covered under your policy  or to learn about Local Blue Plan criteria, contact your Local Blue Plan. Before making an appointment, be sure to contact your provider to verify its current Network and Blue Distinction Centers status. Each hospital's Cost Index is calculated separately based on data from its Local Blue Plan. Hospitals in portions of California, Idaho, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington may lie in areas served by two Local Blue Plans, resulting in two Cost Index figures; and their own Local Blue Plans decide whether all hospitals in these areas must meet Blue Distinction Centers+ national criteria for one or both Cost Index figures. Neither the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association nor any Blue Plans are responsible for damages, losses, or non-covered charges resulting from Blue Distinction or other provider finder information or care received from Blue Distinction or other providers.  To find out more, contact your Local Blue Plan.
